The technology also offers the best harmful blue light protection across more light situations including the best blue light protection indoors . As with all Transitions lens technologies, they block 100% of UVA and UVB.
Compared to the previous Transitions XTRActive lenses, this new generation is darker overall , darker in hot temperatures and in the car, and up to 35% faster to fade back . These advances are possible thanks to the new nano-composite matrix technology combined with new, extra powerful broad spectrum dyes which activate in both the UV and visible light spectrum.
“People are experiencing increased symptoms of eye strain and discomfort whether inside or outdoors, and Transitions XTRActive lenses were designed with this issue in mind. In fact, three out of ten eyeglass wearers are very light sensitive ” said Brian O’Neil, Ph.D., global vice president, Innovation, Technology & Operations, Transitions Optical. “Wearers of Transitions Optical technology want flexibility between indoors, outdoors, and driving, to be better protected at all times. The new generation of Transitions XTRActive provides light protection regardless of the situation.”
Transitions XTRActive New Generation will answer 30% of spectacle wearers needs and is a great opportunity to boost the photochromic lenses category.
